Abstract: Purpose: Thermal injury causes catabolic processes as the body attempts to repair the damaged area. This study evaluated the effects of a scald injury on the morphology of muscle fibers belonging to a muscle distant from the lesion. Methods: Thirty Wistar rats were divided into control (C) and scalded (S) groups. Group S was scalded over 45% of the body surface, standardized by body weight. Rats in both groups were euthanized at four, seven and 14 days following the injury. The middle portions of the medial ga… Show more

“…Different burn models have been presented. Methods for producing experimental burns included boiling water 6 , heated brass bar 7 , heated (130°C) aluminum plate 8 , a constant-temperature hot plate (170ªC) placed over stainless steel rods 9 and scalding over 45% of the body surface 10 . In the present study, skin burns were inflicted by transference of energy (heat) using direct conduction (Copper/skin) utilizing different increasing temperatures (100°C, 150°C and 200°C).…”

“…Severe injuries to the skeletal muscle result in muscle weakness, which delays recovery, exposes patients to neuromuscular complications that increase hospital stay, and increase the probability of mortality [1]. In muscular dystrophy, an imbalance between muscle damage and muscle repair through stem cell-mediated regeneration is thought to contribute to progressive decline in muscle function [2].…”

“…Burns are generally caused by flammable substances and overheated liquids 2 . Depending on the severity of the injury, epidermal necrosis can occur, which affects the dermis and the underlying tissues, and can lead to systemic changes that compromise other organs and tissues that are remote from the burnt area 3 . In addition, hypovolemic shock and infectious or inflammatory diseases can occur, which are among the most challenging situations that patients with burns and their care teams have to confront.…”
